Shopping at Hobby Lobby might be a hard-to-quit habit (I won’t tell if you don’t!), but when you know the Hobby Lobby sale schedule, you’ll save money on every shopping trip. So, it definitely has the greenlight from KCL.
Hobby Lobby fans, here is the Hobby Lobby sale schedule you’ve always known you needed.
Download the KCL app and we’ll tap your shoulder when we see a killer deal at Hobby Lobby, because that’s what friends are for.
Disclaimer: Because Hobby Lobby ended its 40% off coupon in March 2021, we’re keeping a closer eye on its sale alerts and will update this article if we see any changes.
Hobby Lobby furniture, custom framing, books, and wearable art are always on sale.
If you’ve shopped Hob Lob for any length of time, you know that some items are always on sale. (There’s actually a class action lawsuit — questioning whether something can always be on sale — that will decide whether or not Hobby Lobby’s perpetual sales violate states’ Unfair and Deceptive Trade Practices Acts.)
In the meantime, I’m not complaining. Here are the items always on sale at Hobby Lobby:
Bandanas, Glidan T-shirts, other T-shirts
Cake decorating — 30% off
Various sale prices on streamers, fondant, table covers, balloons, decorative icing, candy wafers
Craft items, jewelry, and jewelry-making items go on sale every three weeks.
Craft items can be a slippery slope—some items may stay on sale an extra week — but you can plan on the once-every-three-weeks jewelry rotation.

Hobby Lobby puts home and wall decor on sale once every other week.
With this every-other-week rotation, you can time it so you can all the home decor you need on sale at once. For example, if you’re shopping at Hobby Lobby and you want rugs and throw pillows but they’re not on sale, just wait a week and they will be.

Cricut machines and some paper craft items rarely ever on sale.
